This morning I wrote the dedication to my new book that is coming out in January.
It is called Taking Your Personal Power Back - 101 Days of Relentless Action Forward.
If you’ve ever experienced a loss in your life or have struggled with anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, mental health problems and just can’t see your way out of the dark, you will know how terrifying, lonely, and scary that journey really is.
If you have never experienced such terror or fear but a family member has, you may not really know how that feels to the other person.
Let me tell you, it’s living hell.
It’s terrifying, horrifying, debilitating and it’s all you ever think about.
When your mind goes and you are at war with yourself and your body 24/7/365 I can honestly say there is absolutely nothing worse.

While abs are nice to have, your kids don’t need you to have abs, they need you to be alive, happy, healthy, and living your life on purpose.
2. You will never have external worth, riches or...
Peace of Mind. What would that be of WORTH to you?
Did you know that pills have no skills? That even IF you pop a pill, you still gotta do work to get better?
A moment of intense vulnerability here. But it’s going out there, as I know someone out there NEEDS this. Feel free to share if you know someone struggling too
The transformation I am most proud of in the past 6 weeks.. in my life?? Not abs. Not 80 pounds.
Let me tell you. Coming OFF of these anxiety pills hasn’t been fun. Brain zaps. Exhaustion. Irritability. Insomnia. Bloating. Indigestion. Moodiness. Confusion. Brain Fog. Fear.
This wasn’t the first time I was prescribed medication.
The first time was when my marriage ended, and I was battling LIFE, and Postpartum depression, situational circumstances made coping VERY heard.
The second time was I lost someone I loved dearly, and I took my second stress leave from work. I was so embarrassed, and ashamed. I felt judged, and honestly hated going back to...
